Yes, we did. Ryan even had all trac tickets imported into GitHub and some redirection from old URLs from Trac tickets to the issue. The reason for not proceeding were too many limitations. Like, inability to list all tickets belonging to a particular port, inability to show all issues assigned to you, it was impossible to enforce consistent numbering of tickets during the initial import, people who submitted tickets would no longer be their "authors", they would only get an email saying "discussion continues here" for each ticket they ever participated at. GitHub issues could potentially work well for individual components like macports-base, but then I'm not sure if we would be ok with having half of issues on GitHub and the other half on Trac. Mojca
